Control of the sapling borer, Sahyadrassus malabaricus (Lepidoptera, Hepialidae) in forest plantations

Control of the sapling borer, Sahyadrassus malabaricus (Lepidoptera, Hepialidae) in forest plantations

Entomon 12(2): 137-139

Five insecticides were tested for the control of larvae of Sahyadrassus malabaricus in plantations of teak (Tectona grandis) and Trema orientalis in Kerala, India, in 1979-82. The cover over the tunnel mouth and the larval feeding area was removed and the insecticides were brushed on. HCH (0.5% a.i.) did not cause significant mortality while lindane, carbaryl and Sevimol (all at 0.5% a.i.) and tar concentrate caused significant mortality but did not give complete protection.
